Foundation sticks are soo back!
Anastasia Beverly Hill and Hourglass are just some of the brands that released their foundation sticks recently but for now, let’s focus on Makeup Forever.
The size and packaging of this foundation is, without a doubt, a plus factor. It is easy to carry around especially if you travel a lot. You don’t have to worry about spills which, by the way, happened to me TWICE on the same trip! 😑
If you want something that will look flawless in photos, you may want to grab this one. I was WOWED because when I took my photos using the iPhone 6s cam, it looked… well, just check it out.
Though I got the same shade as with my MUFE Ultra HD Liquid Foundation, the stick form is much lighter on me.

Created for the very latest high-definition technologies of the film and TV industry, ULTRA HD advanced formulas look invisible on 4K camera and to the naked eye. Perfect for the makeup pros and for you. ULTRA HD stick foundation feels like a second skin and provides medium to full coverage while looking flawless and natural. Exclusive 4K Complex guarantees invisible, natural and comfortable makeup.
– Makeup Forever
I’m so used to liquid foundations that when I first tried the foundation stick I wasn’t sold entirely on the hype. Yes, it looked flawless on photos but I didn’t like how thick it looked in person.
But after using it for months, I finally found my way on how to apply it beautifully and that’s with a help of some facial oil. I added some of my CoverFx Infusion Drops to the stick, mixed a little then applied it with a Beautyblender.
- creamy but easy to work on
- full coverage
- does not cling to the dry areas of the face (based on my experience)
- lasted for more than 6 hours of wear before I removed it.
Overall, the performance of this foundation is one of the best that I’ve tried, HOWEVER, if we talk about everyday, natural-looking face I will still reach for its sister – MUFE Ultra HD Liquid Foundation. Plus! I may need to get a darker shade to perfectly match my face & neck. 😉
- Sold at 43 USD per stick/tube or 72 SGD (available at local Sephora stores)
